My Hanging Fuschia plant and all my impatiens in planter boxes were damaged when my deck was power washed last Friday. I think they may have used bleach in the washing solution. Do you have any advice to bring my plants back?

Flushing them with water may help.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

One would think the person who did this would have read the instructions. Any chemical can cause plant damage, and usually the plants have to be removed or covered before hand. Flushing with water is about the only option now.
